When young people get their first real jobs, they face a lot of new, confusing situations. They may find that everything is different from the way things were at school.

Since we are social beings, the quality of our lives depends in large measure on our interpersonal relationships. One strength of human condition is our possibility to give and receive support from one another under stressful (有压力的) conditions. Social support makes up the exchanges of resources among people based on their interpersonal ties. Those of us with strong support systems appear better able to deal with major life changes and daily problems. People with strong social ties live longer and have better health than those without such ties.Studies over types of illnesses, from depression to heart disease, show that the presence of social support helps people defend themselves against illness, and the absence of such support makes poor health more likely.
Social support cushions stress in a number of ways. First, friends, relatives and co- workers may let us know that they value us. Our self-respect is strengthened when we feel accepted by others in spite of our faults and difficulties. Second, other people often provide us with informational support. They help us to define and understand our problems and find solutions to them. Third, we typically find social companionship supportive.(83)Taking part in free-time activities with others helps us to meet our social needs while at the same timedistracting us from our worries and troubles. Finally, other people may give us instrumental support－money aid, material resources, and needed services— that reduces stress by helping us resolve and deal with our problems.

(84)One of the best-known proverbs must be "Early to bed, early to rise, makes a manhealthy, wealthy and wise. " The promises of health, wealth and wisdom to those who join the ranks of the early retires and risers must be particularly appealing to many people in our contemporary society. There is no doubt that one of the greatest concerns of modern man is his health. It is estimated that in the United States 200 billion dollars are spent on health care each year. The medical field has grown into such a big business that it employs 4. 8 million people and it appears that in many places, more staff is needed to meet the demands of the people whoare concerned about their physical well-being.
Much more interest has been shown in preventive(预防的) medicine in recent years. (85) This is probably due in part to the increasing costs of medical treatment, but the writings of such people as Dr. Kenneth Cooper have also played an important role. In his book Aerobics, Dr. Cooper communicated his message of the benefits of exercise so effectively that many other authors have followed in his trail, and literally millions of readers have put on their sports shoes and taken to the highways and byways of America. A recent survey showed that overone million people are jogging. The last time I was in Honolulu, I wasamazedto see hundreds of people, young and old, running for their lives, and I discovered many of them had run in the Hawaiian Marathon.
Exercise has also become a major part of conversation. At a dinner party recently, the president of a bank asked me, "You look like a runner; how far do you run each day?"A few days later when I appeared on a national television show, the host suddenly asked me if I was a regular runner. On both occasions the conversation turned to the subject of exercise and I found, as I have found wherever I have traveled recently, that this is a subject on many people's minds. Of course, there are still many people who are less enthusiastic about exercise. They appreciate the philosophy of Robert M. Hutchins who said, "Whenever the thought of exercise occurs to me, I lie down till it passes. "
56.The underlined word "retires". in Para. 1 probably refers to.
A. people who go to.bed
B. people who live in quiet places
C. people who have a lot of free time
D. people who give up their work
57. The first paragraph indicates that medical workers.
A. can make a lot of money
B. like running sports more than ordinary people
C. are more concerned with their own health
D. are in great demand
58.In the United States, medical treatment is.
A. expensiveB. insufficientC. very effectiveD. cheap
59. The pronoun "it" in the last sentence of the passage means.
A. exerciseB. the thought of exercise
C. meD. nothing
60. The examples of conversation in the last paragraph are used _.
A. to show the writer's love for travel
B. to prove that the writer was a good runner
C. to show people's interest in exercise
D. to prove that people are tired of old conversation topics
